Paper Abstract

The Signature Technology Laboratory of the Georgia Tech Research Institute has nearly 10 years experience in the analysis, modeling and simulation of imaging infrared missile seekers. This experience has led to the development of an integrated Imaging Simulation for Infrared Sensors that has been applied to a range of problems from imaging seeker signal processing development to imaging infrared countermeasure concepts exploration. This paper will describe applications of a closed loop model which has the missile seeker signal processor drive the missile gimbal platform line-of-sight, which in turn is used to provide guidance signals to the missile autopilot. The infrared scene generation is briefly described, with emphasis placed on the sensor and signal processor subsystems. Results of test cases are shown, and applications are discussed.
